Get Your Concrete Ready for Summer

Summer is one of the best seasons of the year. It’s a time for family get-togethers, hanging out by the pool, grill outs on the patio, and simply spending more time outside enjoying the outdoors. While summer can be full of joy, you don’t want to spend it worrying about your concrete surfaces. By nature, concrete is very durable and resistant to a variety of conditions and temperatures (if it was poured and treated properly). However, the rapid change in temperatures from the end of winter to the beginning of summer can begin to cause issues for your concrete if not addressed. So, how can you prepare your concrete for the upcoming summer months?

Address Any Winter Damage – From the drop in temperatures to the accumulation of moisture, winter is the one season that impacts your concrete the most. One of the first things following winter should be a full inspection of your concrete to look out for cracks, pooling of water, and other signs of weathering. Once these issues have been identified, a proper solution can be put into place, such as expansion joint repair, concrete leveling, sunken concrete repair, and more.

Deep Cleaning – Over time, our concrete is exposed 24/7 to many conditions, such as grease and oil stains, mold and mildew, hail, and more. These can form an unappealing layer to walk on and look at. Utilizing a pressure washer will achieve a deep clean that adds beauty and freshness to any concrete surface.

Sealing – While concrete may be sealed after its first installed, it doesn’t mean it will last forever. As a good rule of thumb, concrete should be sealed once every 2 years to protect the top surface against water, solvents, salt, and other chemicals that can weaken it over time. Following winter and proper cleaning, it may be best to seal your concrete surface to protect it from whatever summer has to throw our way.
